Notes and Editorial Reviews

Kempff and Leitner with the Berlin Philharmonic have excellent rapport. Theirs is a more poised, less dynamic account, by no means lacking in sparkle but rather gentler overall. Despite its age, the recording is refined with excellent orchestral detail.

-- Christopher Headington, Gramophone [9/1988]
